Last month, DPR IAN made a triumphant return to the music scene with the indie-pop hit ‘Peanut Butter & Tears’. Remarkably, the video has already amassed 3.5 million views on YouTube in just one month.
Before MITO, there was Insanity… The “Dear Insanity…” EP serves as a prequel to the expansive MITO universe. Spotlighting Mr. Insanity, who first appeared in the MIITO short film, “Dear Insanity…” follows IAN’s journey to and throughout the dreamlike realm known as ‘The Other Side.’ As he traverses through The Other Side, IAN slowly begins to lose his sanity bit by bit, thus turning into his new alter ego Mr. Insanity at the story’s climax.
Explaining the theme of his latest single, “So I Danced,” IAN further talks about his latest release.
In a series of insane and deadly events, Insanity is met with the question of how he feels about all this to which he begins dancing, indicating he is clearly not in the right state of mind. This is also where Insanity first encounters MITO in a twist of events on The Other Side.
DPR IAN’s previous studio album, “Moodswings In To Order,” achieved remarkable global success by debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, #6 on the World’s Albums chart, and #7 on Spotify’s Top Albums Debut Global and US charts, respectively. The album has garnered over 50 million streams in the US alone. He has also earned coveted spots on prestigious festival lineups, including “Coachella,” “Head in the Clouds NY and LA,” “Lollapalooza,” and more. The accompanying “MIITO” short film, a testament to IAN’s artistic brilliance, was directed and edited by the multi-talented artist himself. The captivating film came to life during a sold-out, whirlwind 4-month world tour spanning North America, Latin America, the UK, Europe, Asia, and Australia, where fans across the globe embraced his music with tremendous enthusiasm.
